Girls Friday: the other Kate

Here she is, looking as fresh as a daisy for Another Man magazine's spring 2012 issue. Like butter wouldn't melt. That Kate Upton might be everywhere these days, but Kate Moss takes some beating.

Junya Watanabe jacket: for street hunting

Junya Watanabe Comme Des Garcons Man's latest jacket has something of the hunting vibe about it, with its shoulder patch so you can take comfortable aim at those pesky varmints, and poacher's pockets. Ready made for a bit of wildlife spotting on the grim streets.

Glo Bars: headlights for your bike

Even with some pretty decent lights on my bike I always wonder if that driver about to turn out of that corner can actually see me, which must be a similar thought to that which went through the mind of Mitchell Silva, Industrial Design student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design when he came up with the idea for the Glo Bars.

These are essentially LED handlebars, with lights embedded into cut-away sections of the bars themselves and powered by a watch battery.

Apparently they aren't strong enough to go into production yet, on account of him cutting away half the pars to fit the lights presumably, but when they do, I reckon they'll end up as essential equipment for riding on the evening roads.

Supreme x Clarks Desert Mali low: would you?

This is the latest colab between Supreme and Clarks - something we have now come to expect as each season progresses. These are essentially, as their name suggests, a desert boot without the boot bit, so therefore a desert shoe.

The only identifying Supreme contribution would appear to be an embossed logo on the heel, and I'm guessing the colourway, because without it, these would just be a slightly tweaked pair of Desert Khans.

And the question has to be, would you have given them a second look without that logo?

Available in Supreme stores worldwide from March 29.

Girls Friday: Kate Upton takes Zoo York

You can't turn without bumping into a new Kate Upton stunt these days, and this one has been garnering more attention than most thanks to profanity-laden cockroaches and an over-sensitive censors it has gone around the globe like a swarm of locusts.

David Choe: art in the right places

David Choe is the graffiti artist who did a mural on the wall of Facebook's office and agreed to be paid in shares. He is now $200m better off. Turns out he'd rather have his privacy back. What a coincidence. That's exactly why I continually bat away million-pound offers for stuff.

His art is already selling for tens of thousands of dollars around the world. Here's an interview.

Stussy Deluxe SS2012: Older, wiser

The new Stussy Deluxe lookbook features Alex "Baby" Turnbull, one of the old school of skaters and a long-time friend of Shawn Stussy.

Alex is a former British skateboarding champion who is also quite handy with the martial arts and is a musician and DJ. He has just produced and co-directed a film called Beyond Time, which is a documentary about the history of postwar modern art, through the life of his father William Turnbull - the pioneer of British Modernism.

So watch the video - he has a lot to say.
